Eevee & Snorlax-GX Revealed in Full, More Info About Tag Team Cards!

A clear image of Eevee & Snorlax-GX has now been revealed in CoroCoro magazine!

The card will be part of Japan’s SM9 Tag Bolt set in December. The set will then be combined into our Team Up set in February.

Eevee & Snorlax-GX – Colorless – HP270
Basic Pokemon (TAG TEAM)

[C] Cheer On: Attach an Energy card from your hand to 1 of your Pokemon.

[C][C][C][C] Dump Press: 120+ damage. If your opponent’s Active Pokemon is an Evolution Pokemon, this attack does 120 more damage.

[C][C][C][C]+ Megaton Frenzy GX: 210 damage. If this Pokemon has at least 1 extra Energy attached to it (in addition to this attack’s cost), draw cards until you have 10 cards in your hand. (You can’t use more than 1 GX attack in a game.)

When your TAG TEAM is Knocked Out, your opponent takes 3 Prize cards.

Weakness: Fighting (x2)
Resistance: none
Retreat: 4

This is the first TAG TEAM revealed since the mechanic was revealed at Worlds in August with Pikachu & Zekrom-GX. This means we can finally define their attributes since we now have a frame of reference!

As speculated, it appears their GX attacks will have extra effects depending on how many extra Energy you’ve attached to them. This is denoted by the “+” in the attack cost.

They feature two Pokemon of the same type on one card, possess much higher HP, are Basic Pokemon, and give up three Prize cards. The Pokemon themselves do not have to be Basic Pokemon — for example, Zoroark & Greninja-GX are Stage 2 and 1 Darkness Pokemon, but their Tag Team card will be a Basic [D] Pokemon.

So far we know there’s going to be a Pikachu & Zekrom-GX, Eevee & Snorlax-GX, Zoroark & Greninja-GX, and Gengar & Mimikyu-GX. Magikarp & Wailord-GX will probably be featured in the Towering Splash-GX Box since the two Pokemon were “randomly” advertised at an official tournament next to some of the aforementioned Pokemon.

We will be getting six Tag Team cards in our Team Up set. This means more are yet to be revealed!

    Well, definitely looks interesting. The attacks aren’t bad. I’m anxious to see what else we have in store.

    Weakness to fighting. Again. A LOT of pokemon can OHKO that thing, including baby buzz with a little help on the Sledghammer turn.

    Not playing against fighting? then that's a pretty wicked card.

    I do not think the rewards outweigh the risks. You're re giving up half your prize cards for a Pokémon that has a substantial energy cost, and only has a good attack if your opponents active is an evolution. Hard pass on ever playing this card, I'll stick with shrine decks and scoop three easy prize cards!

    Still can't wait to see what Wailord and Magikarp's going to be like.

    [W][W][W][W] Magikarp's Splash: But nothing happened!

    [W][W][W][W] Wailord's Splash: your Wailord just initiated a tsunami! Your opponent's active and benched Pokémon have all been swept away and knocked out. Take all the prize cards.

    Tag teams are too risky to be a deck of their own in my opinion, but this is an auto inclusion as a 1 of in malamar or literally anything with good energy acceleration in my opinion. If you're against fighting, just don't use it and stick with your psychic attackers

    Could actually see this eevee tag being thrown into a marshadow-toolbox malamar deck for targeting evolution pokemon? Maybe not that much of an advantage over using necrozma-gx's attack which will actually hit for 250 with 4 energy attached....

    Yup, I don't get the cries of "POWERCREEP". 3 of these have a weakness to fighting (I assume zoro/gren will too) and the ghosts will be weak to dark. It's like they made them weak to established mons/decks on purpose. That's just good game design to test the waters with these

    This is the second Tag Team GX fully revealed. Look at any other new card mechanic added to the game. They only get more powerful as the sets go on.

    I'm sure they'll get more support. I'm just not seeing any immediate alarms going off in my mind based on what we know here. If they get support that makes them not lose to established decks then it's probably gonna be ok.

    Using Energy Switch for a stupid reason is NOT a good idea since you burn cards and no essential item recovery ATM. Ok, I know on Oranguru but besides on that.
    • Eevee & Snorlax TTGX - High HP, Baby Buzz #HeyNick and Diancie can still OHKO it, amazing attacks, easily throw on a Malamar. 5 Geodudes

    The Zekrom one is not really worth it imo but the Snorlax one is really bulky if you're not playing against fighting and with energy acceleration the second attack is actually good.

    I'm still not liking Tag Team because being able to take 3 prizes for a simple KO is just too much - on the other hand they can be unstoppable late game sweepers, especially if the future ones will be better/Tag Team gets support in the form of trainer cards. None of these ideas really appeal to me.
